LNG: Federal government plans further liquefied gas terminals here


Wilhelmshaven and Brunsbüttel were known, now it is clear: LNG terminals are also to be built in Lubmin and Stade. The Federal Government has decided on further locations for four floating liquefied natural gas terminals. The third terminal goes to Stade, the fourth to Lubmin, as the Ministry of Economic Affairs in Berlin announced on Tuesday. The floating liquefied natural gas terminals should be available there from May 2023. Two vessels will already be available this year and should be deployed in Wilhelmshaven and Brunsbüttel around the turn of the year 2022/23, according to the ministry. The Stade site should be available from the end of 2023. According to the Federal Ministry of Economics, there will be another terminal at Stade with a private operator. This should be available at the end of 2022. According to the operator, the offshore installation off Lubmin will not be available until the end of 2023 at the earliest. In Lubmin, another fifth floating liquefied natural gas terminal will be built by a private consortium by the end of 2022. “We need to build new infrastructure in a very short time in order to be able to replace Russian gas as quickly as possible. “, said Minister of Economics and Climate Protection Robert Habeck (Greens): “It is therefore very good news that in addition to the four federal ships, there is now a fifth private ship from regasification. This allows us to increase the amount that can be re-landed and thus improve the supply situation.”
